Call me crazy, but there is one feature of the former behavior that I
like... you can MOVE a category without its permalinks breaking. And if
you're using Scott Yang's permalink redirect plugin, it'll give a
redirect to the new location! I moved my WordPress category from
/category/internet/wordpress/ to /category/wordpress/ and the old links
Still, that probably doesn't outweigh the benefit of being able to have
/category/sports/people/ and /category/movies/people/ or something.
Ugh, that's going to be a bear to write... although at least we don't
have to do mod_rewrite rules as well. :-)
